Valentines Show ‘Em the Love Cookies

Time to show ’em how much you love ’em!  Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies with a bit of pizzazz that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day! 

The cookies pictured below I made “super-sized”.  They found their way into the paws of six ornery little punks!


Show ‘Em You Love ‘Em Cookies
1 1/2 C Butter
1 1/2 C Sugar
1 C Brown Sugar
1 1/2 C Peanut Butter
1 1/2 t Vanilla
3 Eggs
3 C Flour
1 T Baking Soda
1/2 t Salt
1 1/2 C Quick Oats
12 oz Chocolate Chips 
Melting Chocolate for Decorating in various colors
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter & sugars until smooth.  Stir in peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla until well combined.  Slowly add flour, salt, & soda into the batter until mixed through.  Add oats and chocolate chips.  Stir.  Drop on parchment lined cookie sheets. 
Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Cool on sheets for 5 minutes or until set. 
When cookies are completely cooled top with melted chocolate.  My method for melting chocolate is to place it into a microwave safe bowl and zap it for 1 minute.  Stir and continue to cook for 15 second intervals until melted and smooth.  It’s then easiest to pour into a zipper bag, snip the end off, and decorate away!
